An Outing with an Anti Climax...

The night before, planned to go Kiara Park in the morning and have our first picnic there.

Today I woke up at 5.15am (Bio clock refuse to let me sleep any longer....)
Checked my email and surf the net a bit (Found this really shocking video of some 'Guru' teaching baby yoga.... she was holding the baby's hands and swing her up and down and around and over her head.... crazy!) Anyway... after that went into the kitchen and realized that I put 3 eggs to boil and was so engrossed by the shocking video online that I forgot about it. One of the eggs flew out of the pot and splatted all over the window and the whole pot was black! So my thought was my pot is gone for good! After cleaning up the mess, pot was ok, so I continued to prepare egg sandwiches and sausages for our picnic. We were all excited except hubby who was still blur!

We reached the park at 7.30am sharp. We had a nice walk where Reese got to show his daddy the fungi and shaky bridge (We went there last Monday without daddy).

The bridge

Fungi

Monkeys

He talked non stopped throughout the walk and many aunties that walked past can't help but commented that Reese was cute and some were interested in his conversation with us. After half hour we completed our walk around the park.

Our view from our picnic spot. It's a small stream.

Then we headed to a nice spot by the stream. Lay out the mat and had everyone on the mat. As I unpack the food.... buzzzzzz....... mosquitos! Splat! one down... next came more buzzzzing.... fleas! can't be bothered... time for food.... guess what? I brought everything except the filling for the sandwich! My egg mayo! Ok..... no egg mayo.... fine... we still have the croissant and saugages, mangoes and drinks.....

Our breakfast minus the egg mayo

As we eat...the fleas just can't stop bothering Reese... hubby was not comfortable either... I was trying to be positive and told them it's ok..... I can tell you that both hubby and Reese didn't enjoy the whole picnic experience! Ah...so much for outdoor fun. After awhile... I was irritated by the fleas too....

Our so called picnic....

My view while lying down on the mat. Haven't done this for many many years...

Note: Reese needs to have more outdoor fun. He was afraid of the ants, didn't even want to sit on the ground even with the mat! 100% city boy....

Kiara Park? TTDI park looks similar. Can catch little fishes too, but the last time I was there I remembered flies also.
